Foreword 



The college year has come to an 
end, leaving only pleasant remi- 
niscences of purposes accomplished 
and joys experienced. As much as 
was available of the things worth 
while has been incorporated in this 
volume, so that, in years to come, 
when the hand of Fate has scattered 
us afar, we may be able once more 
to obtain realistic glimpses of the 
joyful days spent with our Alma 
Mater. Only Time, that venerable 
symbol of Eternity, can tell how suc- 
cessful the effort to preserve these 
memories in this annual has been.

T, 



HE student body was overjoyed at the begin- 
ning of the Spring quarter when news reached it 
that a bill had passed the Legislature making Kent 
a Liberal Arts College. That this was an epoch- 
making event in the history of Kent State cannot 
be denied. 

It is now our duty to uphold the trust that the 
people of Ohio have placed in our hands, and to 
make our school one of the best in the state. Let 
us forget the word "normal" when we talk of our 
school, and instead make the word "college" ring 
out as though we were proud of our institution. 
Public attention has been focused upon us, and 
much is expected of us. How are we going to 
meet the challenge?

FROM PRESIDENT ENGLEMAN S INAUGURAL ADDRESS 

"Recent years have exhibited a wholesome tendency upon the part of many 
biographers and historians to debunk both history and biography. When teachers 
and texts content themselves with the elimination of bunk, they do a real service to 
the cause of Truth. But when youth is duped and deceived into thinking that men 
long acclaimed as great were wholly cheap and vulgar, void of purpose opportunists, 
only then historic criticism over-leaps itself, and the latter state may be worse than 
the former. It may at least be questioned whether social progress is furthered more by 
our Menckens than by our Weems. 

Literature has assumed new forms and new aims, characteristic of the times 
in which we live. It paints marvelous pictures today, many of them beautiful, many 
of them sordid, most of them realistic. Nothing is too vulgar and mean, little too 
sensual, for the printed page of a magazine or book because they collectively portray 
life as it can be found. But this is not literature. At best it is only one type of 
literature. There are other types. Who can say that Lowell and Longfellow and 
Burns, Milton, Tennyson and Browning and Shakespeare will not live in spite of their 
obvious attempts to preach to us — nay, more, because they succeeded in doing it, 
when poems and books full of sex but without a soul will have been forgotten. 

Paul Whiteman is the exponent of one type of music. It has its place. I do 
not condemn it. But it is not the whole of music, nor even the best of it. Sokoloff 
in Cleveland and Damrosch in New York are helping to popularize another type that 
will live and minister to the best emotions of the human heart when jazz has been 
stilled forever. 

Now what I have said about history, biography, literature and music has been 
said to emphasize one point. To my mind it is a most important one. There is 
an aspect of each of these subjects, a method of approach to it or an interpretation 
of it, that can be used to magnify and vivify the students respect for fundamentals 
in life — spirituality, patriotism, idealism, culture, refinement. Our plea is for teach- 
ing that integrates, there is too much that disintegrates. When science 
teaching destroys the essential in a student's religion, it becomes a disintegrating 
force. When our history is debunked to the point that youth is made cynical in its 
attitude; towards our most dearly bought institutions, and their founders, his- 
torical criticism has become their enemy. When literature is taught so that the 
student no longer aspires to hitch his wagon to a star because his eyes are fixed 
upon the mud and filth about his feet, teaching needs a new objective, and school- 
room courses in literature need a renaissance. A teacher's college must be ad- 
ministered and courses taught so that its graduates go out into the profession of 
their choice with a great desire to communicate their vision of life as a unity to 
children and youth who do not have it. Facts of life, if we recognize them as such, 
are easy to teach. Their meanings, their hidden implications, their bearing upon 
eternal verities, are matters of greater concern. Knowledge has to become wisdom 
to be dynamic and it is at this point that our greatest responsibility is to be found 
in a school that is authorized to prepare young men and women to teach Ohio's 
children."

DEAX OF JNIEN 
Raymond E. Manchester, A. B., M. A. 

The greatest task confronting any edu- 
cational institution is that of attempting 
to devise some method of handling the so- 
called intangibles. 

How may we find out the point of view 
a student may take toward any given 
proposition, how are attitudes to be class- 
ified, what are moods and how may we 
change them, how may we measure growth 
in responsibility, what is the effect of 
inspiration — 

These are the types of questions we are 
interested in and are attempting to answer 
in this office, and since our success cannot 
be measured in terms of standardized tests, 
our only way of checking results will be 
through a study of new points of view, 
attitudes, new moods, new growths in re- 
sponsibility and new ideals. So you see 
we are back where we started and perhaps that is where we should remain.

College Memories 

Kent Staters of 1929, as you leave us 
this summer you will carry away certain 
assets accumulated during your years at 
college. What an array of these there will 
be; knowledge, (some wisdom, too, we 
hope), skills, college togs, etc., together 
with the diplomas — and then the photo- 
graphs and friendships and memories. Thus 
e(]uipped you go back to your home towns 
to show the friends and neighbors Kent 
State's finished product. 

Of all these assets, memories will endure 
the longest, for even friendships will fade 
into memories; and of all these assets 
memories will give the highest returns in 
satisfaction. May nothing ever rob you 
of the colorful memories, the joyous mem- 
ories, the winsome memories, even the sobering memories, and the sacred mem- 
ories of the years you are concluding as undergraduates. As year follows year, and 
you find the outline of this or that mental picture becoming a bit hazy, come home 
to i-evive your most precious assets — memories.

DEPARTMENT OF ART 

Nina S. Humphrey 
Tlie Beauty Lover'a Creed 

I believe in Beauty as the manifestation 
of Triumphant life. 

I believe in looking for Beauty every- 
where; watching for it, searching for it 
in the great and in the small, in the 
commonplace and in the unusual things of 
this wonderful woi'ld. 

I believe in working for beauty always ; 
planning for it, trying for it in the making 
of all that has to be made, and in the doing 
of all that has to be done. 

I believe in living the Beautiful life; a 
life in the right relation to the lives of 
others and in harmony with the eternally 
unfolding life of God. 

This Dresentaticn of creed bv Dr. 
Henry Turner Bailey must happily expresses the use of Beauty in the practical 
activities of every day. It has been the inspiration in the work of the department, 
and the enthusiasm of the students in accepting the creed is evidence that they 
too are searchers for Beauty. 




DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE 
J. T. Johnson, A. B. 

In the long period of time covering social 
development. Agriculture was among the 
earliest vocations which was clearly defined. 
The intimate relation between continued 
existence and the food supply of people 
establishes a permanent and basic interest. 

While the food-getting activities are es- 
sential to satisfy human needs, the voca- 
tion provides abundant opportunities to 
grow and mature in the higher levels of 
social and spiritual attainment. Agriculture 
is more than a vocation dealing with 
materials; it is a way of living. 

Agriculture as a vocation, because the 
daily activities are closely associated with 
nature, provides a body of experience of 
sound educational value. In viewing the 
subject of agriculture as a study of a mode 
of life economic values would obscure edu- 
cational values. Since human aspirations transcend human needs, the subject of 
agriculture is emphasized as a means of education.

DEPARTMENT OF BIOLOGY 
Harry A. Cunningham, B. S., M. A. 

Biologists are continually adding to our 
knowledge and understanding of the many 
(iitferent aspects of life. This new knowl- 
edge is available for use in our biology 
courses. It is the purpose of the depart- 
ment to keep all courses up-to-date by the 
use of this new material as it appears. 
There have been many important investi- 
gations relative to the teaching of Biology 
in the grades, in the high schools and in the 
colleges. These investigations "afford a 
wealth of new information, sufficient to 
revolutionize current practice, in the se- 
lection and organization of subject matter, 
in methods of instruction and of testing 
results." In the organization of our courses, 
we are striving to advance "in accord 
with general educational progress that has 
marked the last few years." We are en- 
deavoring to apply the large body of scientific data, which is now available to the 
many questions relating to the Biology curriculum and to the technique of instruc- 
tion in Biology. 




DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION 

AND PSYCHOLOGY 

D. W. Pearce, a. B., M. A. 

The general attitude of the department 
of Education and Psychology of Kent 
State College might be most appropriately 
designated as eclectic and we hope well- 
balanced. For some time attention has 
been specifically directed to the improve- 
ment of organization and integration of 
professional courses for teachers. Un- 
warranted duplication and over-lapping in 
the work of this department has been re- 
duced to a minimum. No longer will any- 
one be tempted to say, "If you have had 
one course you have had them all." At- 
tention has also been given to the matter 
of sequence in courses and it is believed 
that the order set down will aid materially 
in producing a cumulative effect which 

cannot be procured by a haphazard order. The selection of content material and the 
method of presentation aim to produce growth in philosophical concepts and to 
increase knowledge of the learning process.

DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH 
Edgar Packard, A. B. 

The Department of English in any in- 
stitution of learning faces a task of tre- 
mendous proportions. The great body of 
literature which has accumulated through 
the centuries necessitates a careful se- 
lection to get material best suited for stu- 
dents; the wide diversity in the types of 
literature requires as wide a diversity of 
methods in presentation; and the yet un- 
solved problem of the most effective teach- 
ing of the mother tongue demands constant 
thought and experimentation. In an in- 
situation preparing teachers for our public 
schools, the task of the English Depart- 
ment is to advance the student to a point 
considerably beyond that which he reached 
in his high school English, and to equip 
him with methods of teaching the subject 
effectively. Professor Satterfreld returned to the department after a year spent in 
Columbia University. Miss Ada Hyatt has come into the department from the Train- 
ing school. Mr. Alfred Hill has charge of Journalism. 



THE FRENCH DEPARTMENT 
Belle Rowlen, A. B., M. A. 

"Whatsoever things are lovely" in the 
literature, science, music or art of other 
nations, these things we would know and 
appreciate. Our French Department offers 
an opportunity for progress towards such 
an ideal. Its courses will take one beyond 
the humdrum of everyday life and afford 
new interests either as a vocation, an 
avocation or a hobby. Even within the 
limits of the requirements for a minor it 
is possible to form some acquaintance with 
those beyond the sea and to enter into an 
appreciation of their ways of thinking 
and living. 

It has been said that every man has two 
countries, his own and France. Why? 
What does the expression mean? We can 
help you to find the answer. At least it is here that ways are opened by which one 
can venture forth to find for himself some of the "lovely things" of La Belle France.

r3EPART:,IEXT OF GEOGRAPHY 
AXD GEOLOGY 

David Olson, M. Sc, A. B. 

How big' is your world? How far does 
your imagination soar? How deep does 
your understanding penetrate? To what 
extent is your mind unshackled from 
puperstition and pre.iudice? The answer 
to these and many questions like them are 
functions of your geographic study and 
reading. Even to know where the places 
one reads of are, what is their climate and 
how they are peopled, is something; but 
in its wider meaning, as the science, which 
aims at the explanation of the adjustment 
of man to his surroundings, there is no 
problem in past history or of present 
politics and economics which cannot be 
elucidated by the applications of the princi- 
ples of geography. 



DEPARTMENT OF HF:ALTH AXD 
PHY^SICAL EDUCATIOX 
A. 0. DeWeese, a. B., M. D. 

The Department of Health and Physical 
Education of Kent State College is organ- 
ized upon the assumption that an abund- 
ance of radiating health and physical well- 
being is of more importance to the class- 
room teacher than to an individual in any 
other profession. 

In order to be of the greatest service 
possible to the prospective teacher in 
attaining this ideal the department offers 
the following services: 

1. Physical and health examination on 
entrance with medical advice and con- 
sultation as to how the student might im- 
prove liis physical and health condition. 

2. Regular and systematic exercise two 
days a week in the gymnasium and one 

(lay in the swimming pool. These exercises insofar as possible are adajjted so as to 
train the student to not only Ivjlp himself but others v.honi he might teacli in hi.-, 
professional career. 

."5. Special courses for teachers in Healtli and Physical Training.

HISTORY AXD SOCIAL SCIENCE 
DEPARTMENT 

A. Sellew Roberts, A. B., M. A., Ph. D. 

The History and Social Science Depart- 
ment has a two-fold aim. On the one hand 
it attempts to give to the prospective his- 
tory teacher that sound and thoroug'h 
grasp of the subject matter involved with- 
out which success as a history teacher 
is impossible. But on the other hand the 
department aims to help the general stu- 
dent to the cultural background which will 
enable him to live a well-rounded life and 
make him a more useful citizen. Through 
the medium of history the student learns 
to know the great writers of the past, to 
become acquainted with the great thinkers 
such as Plato, Aristotle and Descartes, and 
to watch the growth of science from 
Archimedes through Roger Bacon to the 
wonders of the present. Through history and its sister sciences, government, soci- 
ology and economics, the student watches the whole stream of human progress from 
the pyramids to the present and cannot help being the richer and the better 
equipped for his life work thereby. 



DEPARTMENT OF HOME 
ECONOMICS 

Elsie M. Maxwell, B. S., M. A. 

The year 1928-1929 has been a busy one 
for the Home Economics Department. At 
the beginning of tWe year the thirteen 
upper classwomen extended a cordial wel- 
come to a new department instructor and 
to twenty students who (elected the subject 
as their major interest. 

Home Economics Majors formed the 
nucleus of enrollment for most of the 
courses given throughout the year. How- 
ever, the interest shown in the various 
courses by 97 girls from other depart- 
ments of the college were gratifying. The 
intelligence and the enthusiasm displayed 
by these girls in studying problems of 
home life in thte light of scientific, eco- 
nomic and sociological principles should 
give encouragement to those who are skeptical regarding the future welfare of the 
American home.

THE KIXDERGARTEN-PRIMARY 
DEPARTMENT 

G. Hazel Swan, B. S. 

It has been possible this yeai' to give 
several courses not previously given in 
Kindergarten-Primary. We are looking 
forward another year to offering the stu- 
tlents still further help. 

On the thirteenth of February a Kinder- 
garten-Primary club was organized with 
twenty five members. One of the aims of 
this year is to send two delegates to the 
International Kindergarten convention, 
meeting in New York from April twenty- 
ninth to May third. The privilege of stu- 
dent attendance at the international meet- 
ing is a recent move made by that oi-gani- 
zation. 

An activity of this year for which much 
appreciation has been expressed to the 
■ department was the co-operation of the 
city schools in their summer playground work 



THE LIBRARY 

Margaret Dunbar, B. L.. B. L. S. 

On June 14, 1913, the Library of Kent 
State College began its existence in Merrill 
Hall in the room now occupied by the Otf- 
Campus Women's club and one room 
opening off this for the stack. 

For three years our library remained 
in this location while the Administration 
building was under construction, and had 
grown to be a Library which necessitated 
four standard size floor stacks. It then 
moved to the room in the Administration 
building where the Library has made its 
home for twelve yeairs. We moved in 
literally on the ground floor for the build- 
ing was unfinished. 

Through all the years of pioneering, this 
first year was the hardest, but the vision 
was always before us and the Library 
grew. It is still before us with the first 
unit of the David Ladd Rockwell building standing ir 
symbolic of the place of the Library in the school 




the center of the campus.

DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC 
Florence A. Sublette, B. S., M. A. 

The Department of Music Education at 
Kent State college is organized to serve 
a two-fold purpose. All students who ex- 
pect to teach in the elementary grades are 
required to take two courses in the de- 
partment. These courses aim to acquaint 
the prospective teacher with the problems 
to be encountered in teaching music in the 
class-room and give practical experience 
in handling these problems. Besides 
courses offered for grade teachers there 
are courses that may be elected by students 
who are interested in specializing in music, 
by those who seek music as a recreational 
activity, or by those who enter the de- 
partment to gain a contact with music for 
the cultural background it affords and for 
the fullness it adds to life. 

The department is gradually growing. 

It is a fondly cherished dream that shortly Kent State may offer a four year course 

for the preparation of Music Supervisors. 




MANUAL TRAINING DEPARTMENT 

C. S. Van Deusen, M. E. 

It might have been well if when this 

department was opened in 1913 it had been 

placed on wheels. It certainly has been 

moved about, enough to justify it. In 

1913 the entire department occupied room 

102, Merrill Hall, in which there was then 

equipment for ten pupils to work at bench 

woodwork and for twelve to work at mech- 
anical drawing. To this same room the 

enlarged bench woodworking equipment 

was again moved about a year ago, after 

resting in Science Hall one year and in the 

Power Plant eleven years. 

The Blechanical Drawing and Printing 

equipments have returned again to their 

original building — Merrill Hall, after occu- 
pying rooms in three other buildings — 
Science Hall, Power House and Lowry Hall. 
The space occupied by the department 
has been reduced for the present but the department is "carrying on" in 
to meet the increasing demand for teachers of manual training.

sciexces 

C. F. RuMOLD, A. B., LL. D. 

The Department of Physical Sciences at 
Kent State College offers in regular courses 
102 hours in Chemistry and 30 term hours 
in Physics. In addition special courses 
airanged for students who have the neces- 
sary preparation for profitably pursuing 
the work. Students who are working off 
pre-medical or engineering requirements 
here find exactly the work they need. The 
earlier courses are presented with emphasis 
on the method of teaching these funda- 
mental sciences. It is intended to give in 
these courses the training in the presenta- 
tion of the facts and principles which will 
equip one for successfull.v teaching these 
sciences in the high schools. Those stu- 
dents who are looking forward to careers 
in the applied sciences will find in the more advanced courses work equivalent to 
similar courses in the colleges and universities. Laboratory facilities are unexcelled 
and much emphasis is given to individual laboratory work. 



THE REGISTRAR 
John L. Blair, A. B., M. A. 

In accordance with the policy that the 
office of the Registrar should become a 
bureau of information about the student 
body and its activities, complete new equip- 
ment has been provided and a totally 
changed system of organization is being 
introduced. The equipment permits Wv. 
accumulation of a vast body of data con- 
cerning the college in its various aspects. 
and the system of organization, when in 
full operation, will permit the quick 
reference to the data on the part of all 
persons concerned with problems of the 
colDege. 

Much has already been completed and 
more is now in progress, toward the at- 
tainment of the desired goal. Another 
year should stee the organization in prac- 
tically full operation, and it is the hope and expectation that new goals will then 
be sighted, the attainment of which will still further increase the function of the 
office as a service agency for faculty and administrators.

TRAIXIXG SCHOOL 
A. L. Hee?., a. B., M. a., Ph. D. 

The Training School is now housed in 
the new William A. Cluff Training School 
building. This provides ample space for 
all of the training school activities. Only 
a part of the new equipment has arrived. 
When the remainder is purchased and in- 
stalled, all of the household arts and the 
industrial arts classes of the training 
school will be held in the Training School 
building. The school is also being equipped 
with a radio. Loud speakers will be 
placed in the music room, the study hall, 
and the auditorium. There will be a large 
and a small moving picture machine in the 
auditorium. One room will be set aside 
and equipped with a projection lantern 
and an opaque projector. A complete set 
of Keystone views will be added. Som*; 
splendid works of art will adorn the walls 

of the classrooms and corridors. As a whole, the Training School will be well equipped. 

All are looking forward to its completion. 



DEPARTMENT OF TEACHER-PLACE- 
MENT AND EXTRA-AIURAL 
ACTFVTTIES 

Emmet Stopher, A. B., A. M. 

The Department of Teacher-Placement 
and Extra-Mural Activities was organ- 
izied in Septemer, 1927. One of its chief 
duties is to assist in the placement of teach- 
ers. It undertakes to keep in touch with 
all graduates and with many former stu- 
dents. To a large extent it feels responsi- 
ble for the continued advancement of 
teachers in the field and for their pro- 
motion. To assist in their continued 
growth, extension classes and correspond- 
ence work have been organized. One in- 
structor spends nearly half of his time 
visiting or supervising recent graduates. 

Important phases of its work, so far 
very little developed, are the promotion of 

conference and round table discussions in the field, the rental of films and slides to 
schools, organization of traveling librarises, furnishing of lectures, commencement 
speakers, and entertainers.

June is the month of many farewells. The Senior class of iyi!U is busy these 
days saying good-bye to its many friends and professors whose memories and in- 
spirations will linger long after graduation. 

The Senior class, which was organized at the beginning of the school year, 
elected Walter Jantz to act as president. During the year the class has enjoyed 
many social funcions, including a formal dance and banquet. One great event of 
Senior days was the participation in the inauguration of President James O. Engleman. 
Many other reminiscences of college days will remain in the minds of members of 
the class of 1929 after they leave Kent State. 

We are proud, as Seniors, to say that our College has been granted by legislature 
the authority to give the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees. We hope 
that in the future Kent State will grow and become one of the leading educational 
institutions in America.

Eva Evans; 



The Junior class of '29 has had a year of progress which has prepared it for 
that grand finale of college life, the Senior year. 

The group was organized in the Fall term and elected its officers early in the 
year. Those chosen to guide the destinies of the class were: Pres., Herbert F. 
Kelley; V. Pres., Betty Francis; Secretary, Eva Evans; Treas., Helen Eastwood. 

Much of the success of the class activities of the year can be attributed to the 
three members of the faculty who so generously aided in all class endeavor. Those 
chosen advisers were Mrs. Bernice Setzer, Prof. D. W. Pearce and Prof. C. F. Rumold. 

Besides being active within itself, the class contributed liberally to many college 
functions. In athletics it was represented by several men of sterling ability. Lewis 
Hall, who was varsity center on the basketball squad, proved to be high point scorer 
when the totals were made. In intra-mural men's athletics the class was outstanding. 
having won two of the three meets held during the school year.

.., Clarenco Tablor; V. Pres., Lester Sabin; Ti'eas., Lillian Flower; 
Sec'y. Marian Flower 



Real progress and accomplishment marked the history of the Sophomore Degree 
class during the college year of 1928-1929. Organization of the group took place 
in the Fall term, Clarence Tabler being chosen president, Lester Sabin, vice-pres- 
ident, Marian Flower, secretary, and Lillian Flower, treasurer. Under the administra- 
tion of these capable officers class affairs were ably directed. 

Participating liberally in every branch of college activities, the class of 1931 
distinguished itself above all in debating. The entire varsity squad was composed 
of Sophomores. They are: Eldon Scoutten, Phil Barry and James Holm. 

The class also had its representatives in athletics. Among numerous others, 
Charles Kilbourne was one of the outstanding backfield men on the gridiron squad. 
His excellent passing and line plunging was one of the features of the team. Arthur 
Stejskal. halfback, though not playing regularly because of injuries, scintillated 
brilliantly, especially in the Akron game. In basketball, Kilbourne again proved 
to be a star, while Gordon Kelso played a flashy game at forward. Both have 
earned their second letter in this sport. 

Xext year greater achievement is being anticipated by all members of the class. 
With the coming of its Junior year, will come the feeling that the end of college work 
is at last in sight, and with this inspiration in mind, efforts to do well will be re- 
doubled.

lected for the various duties: Social Committee, Helen Patrick; Gift Committee, 
Florence Sohnlein; Class Day Committee, Grace Sutherin. 

The class sponsored a mask ball and later in the year a surprise party was 
given. Several other social events are being planned at the present time. 

Important and interesting pointers on the application for jobs were given to 
the class by Prof. E. C. Stopher, Director of Extra-mural activities and Teacher 
Placement. After some discussion, leather folders for the diplomas were chosen, 
the colors selected being blue and gold. This is the first year Kent State College will 
give the diplomas in this way. 

Desiring to carry out into the world the ideas of their Alma Mater, the 
Diploma Seniors of 1929 leave the school proud of their accomplishments and hoping 
to carry on their work in a manner that will be creditable both to themselves and 
to their school.

Pres., Elmer Redmond; V. Pres., Louis FuRg ; Sec'y. Catherine Conroy; 
Treas., Gilbert Lawrence 

The Freshmen Degree class came together this fall wholly inexperienced in the 
new life which was before it. However it did not take long to become accustomed 
to our new environment, and we soon were rubbing shoulders comfortably, and calling 
each other by our first names. Xot long after the beginning of the year the class 
was organized and officers elected. Those chosen were: Elmer Redmond, president, 
Louis Fogg, vice-president; Catherine Conroy, secretary; and Gilbert Lawrence, 
treasurer. 

We took an active part in the many activities of the campus. Some of our 
members won their spurs in athletics; others chose a more scholastic role and made 
shining records upon their grade cards. We followed the precedent established last 
year by accepting the challange of the Sophomores to an inter-class debate. We have 
entered actively into fraternity and sorority life and various other social functions. 

However, as full as this year has been, we look forward to three still more 
eventful ones. These expectations are augmented by the fact that our entry into 
this institution took place in an especially auspicious year.

KENT STATE 

Kent State College is set on a hill — 
To win to her door you must climb with a will. 
And Kent State hill is weariful long, — 
But we trudge on together, a glad-hearted throng 
Climbing the hill at Kent. 

Kent State Portal is open wide; 
You've m.ade tlie grade and you're safe inside; — 
There's a clarion call to maiden and youth, 
For now is the time to begin, in truth, 
Climbing the hill at Kent. 

l'(jr, hills of the earth or hills of the soul. 
It is all the same, for they take their toil. 
One of the body and one of the mind, 
.And the summit is hard to gain, we find. 
Climbing the hill at Kent. 

Hut keep a-stepping and first you know, 
Vou are up on the top where the cool winds blow. 
Below, far-stretched, lies a wonderful view 
.\nd glad are the eyes and the heart of you 
That vou climbed the hill at Kent.

WOMEN'S LEAGUE 

The Women's League, which includes the women faculty members as honorary 
members, as well as all the women students on the campus, has been active and 
helpful this year in promoting a spirit of unity and loyalty in the college, in accordance 
with the fundamental aims of the organization. The League has sponsored many 
activities during the last three quarters which have greatly enhanced college life, 
many of which are coming to be periodical functions, and are looked forward to as 
an integral part of the school program. These activities include the Big and Little 
Sister Teas, a reception and dance for new students, the New Years ball, the Sunset 
dances, an Arbor Day program, and the Father's and Mother's Week-end. 

The Women's League was organized with the objects in view to foster a spirit 
of unity among the women students, promote a feeling of loyalty toward the col- 
lege, and provide a method whereby the spiritual, physical, and mental standards of 
women of the college could be aimed and held at a high degree. The constant 
growth and increasing popularity and influence of the organization testify as to 
what degree it has been successful. Since the day of its conception it has prospered 
and grown to occupy the position on the campus which it now holds. 

The officers who have guided the organization during the year 1928-1929 are 
as follows: President, Ruth Eleanor Truog, Vice-President, Lillian Swaney, Secre- 
tary, Olwen Lloyd, and Treasurer, Margaret Jamieson. To their efficient and capable 
work is due the success which has attended the functions of the Women's League 
this year.

most active in the college. Its purpose is to give its members the same opportunity

From the second day of the college year 1928-1929, when the Y. W. C. A.

program of activities. During this academic year, Y. activities have included the 
sponsoring of two pictures of the Yale Chronicle series depicting important historical 
events in the development of our country; a party for the children at the Portage 
County Detention Home, Ravenna, in October; the packing of the Caney Creek box 
in November to which every sorority on the campus contributed a package and which 
was sent to the community center of the Caney Creek Pippa Pan, Kentucky; and 
the Christmas Bazaar held at Moulton Hall in December. 

The regular weekly Y. meeting is held on Wednesday night. During the year, 
varied programs have been given. Dean Blanche A. Verder, the Y. adviser, Pro-

SOCIAL SCIExN'CE CLUB 

One of the most informal clubs on Kent State's campus is the Social Science 
Society. The purpose of the organization is to provide an occasion for students as 
well as faculty members who are interested in the field of history or social science 
to assemble together. 

The policy of the club in previous years has been to have programs made up of 
talks given by prominent speakers. At the beginning of this year, with John Lockett 
as president, a plan was arranged in the form of a project which has been discussed 
in sequence at the various meetings. "An Ideal Government" was the general sub- 
ject. Discussions on "What Form Shall Our Government Take," "What is the Aim 
of Our Government," "Why Have Education" and "What Shall Be Done with 
Those Who Are Unable to Contribute to the Welfare of the State," received 
heated arguments pro and con by the enthusiastic groups which gathered at the 
meetings. 

The club is entirely sponsored by the student body. It meets monthly and 
meetings are preceded by a dinner at Lowry Hall.

FREXCH CLUB 

One of the earliest evidences of the sentiment in malcing Kent State a Liberal 
Arts College was manifested when the first language club appeared — Le Cercle 
Francais. 

This organization which was established in 1927 offers an opportunity for 
French students and others who have had some concern with the language to meet 
for the purpose of promoting intellectual advancement, sociability, good fellowship 
and development of culture in the French language. 

The club meets the second and fourth Thursdays of the month, at which time 
various programs lead toward the advancement of the purpose of Le Cercle. These 
outlines of entertainment have constituted talks concerning French life, French 
games, and French songs. As part of the club's activities this last quarter the 
members have prepared a short French play and have studied in sequence the story 
of "Roland," a hero in French mythology. 

A membership of fifteen, nine being charter members, is now boasted by the 
club. The national colors of France, blue, white and red, were chosen as the colors 
for the club, the fleur-de-lis as the flower. 

Esther Scheetz, president of the organization this year, has done much toward 
the continuance of the successful work which was begun in 1927 with Helen East- 
wood as the head. 

The other officers, as well as Miss Edith Belle Rowlen, the adviser, have co- 
operated efficiently, so that Le Circle Francais can be true to its motto: "Marchons, 
marchons, nous pouvons arriver."

CHEMICAL ESSAY CONTEST 

Nine chemistry students this year participated in the sixth national chemistry 
essay contest for normal colleges, sponsored by Mr. Francis Garvin of New York. 

The contest is open to all students of teacher training institutions, there being 
six subjects with three prizes given for each subject. They are: Relations of Chem- 
istry to Agriculture; Relations of Chemistry to the Enrichment of Life; Relations 
of Chemistry to National Defense: Relations of Chemistry to Industry; Relations 
of Chemistry to Medicine and The Relations of Chemistry to the Home. 

Inspired and aided by Prof. C. F. Rumold, these students wrote acceptable essays 
which were sent in to headquarters. At the time that this annual went to press, 
the winners for this year had not yet been announced. Last year, however, John 
Urban, then a freshman, won a second prize of $300 for his paper on "Chemistry and 
its Relations to Agriculture." 

To encourage the research work of this type among the students. Prof. Rumold 
is giving two term hours credit to all those who write acceptable essays. Not only 
does work of this type bring honor to the school, but the student who writes derives 
a large amount of satisfaction regardless of whether he wins or not, from the acquiring 
of much useful information which otherwise would not be uncovered.

A calendar of activities includes: Founder'3 Day tea; Home Economics luncheon 
in honor of Miss Dorothy E. Shank of Cleveland; educational trip to Akron; food 
demonstrations by a representative from a large food company; and a dress pageant 
for assembly, showing the dresses from 1850 to 1929. The group also took complete 
charge of table service at the reception held for President James O. Engleman. 

The club sold refreshments at all the basketball games and had charge of the 
"eats" at the county tournaments. All profits were turned into the Boston fund, 
since the club plans to send two delegates to the national convention to be held in Tune.

DEBATIXC; TEAM 

In keeping with progressive inter-collegiate policy of Kent State college, a 
varsity debating team was organized last fall under the tutelage of Prof. Edgar 
Packard, head of the English Department, for the purpose of establishing forensic 
relations with neighboring schools. Faithful practice was held during the year, and 
one debate with Hiram college was held under the auspices of the Ravenna Rotary 
club, the question at issue being the regular Ohio Conference proposition: "Resolved, 
that the Jury System Should be Abolished." ]\Iuch practical experience was gleaned 
by the Kent team from this event. 

With the exception of John Rice, alternative, the entire squad was composed of 
sophomores. They were: Eldon Scoutten, James Holm and Phil Barry. Because 
of this fact, much faith is being put into the team for next year, since it is expected 
that all of these will return to continue their work here. Using this year's experience 
as a basis for further action, it may be possible to have a more active team next year 
than has heretofore been considered advisable.

:^iEX's uxiox 

Since the date of its founding, the Men's Union has taken an active part in 
the various college affairs. Founded with the purpose of promoting a feeling of unity 
and integrity among men, and to foster a spirit of devotion and loyalty toward the 
college while at the same time providing a clean social atmosphere, the organization 
has steadily worked toward these ends, growing in influence and ability all the while. 
Each year it presents an active program of events which are more and more coming 
to be an invaluable part of college life. 

The last annual Men's Union banquet, held this year at the Franklin hotel in 
February, drew a majority of enthusiastic men students. The main speaker was 
President James O. Engleman, whose talk was highly appreciated. 

Other affairs sponsored by the Union this year included a dance in November 
and a dinner dance in j\lay. Officers for this year are: Lowell Masters, Charles 
Paulus, Dan Stratton, Robert Hall and Dean R. E. Manchester, faculty adviser. 

One of the dearest hopes of the men of the college is about to materialize due 
to the action of the Union. A Men's Union room, long advocated and much desired, 
has at last been definitely promised by President Engleman. This is perhaps the 
most significant piece of work achieved by the Union this year.

IMEX'S CHORUS 
The members of this group usually number about twenty-five. The men of the 
chorus, combined with the Women's Glee Club, form the group known as the Kent 
State Ensemble Singers. Besides appearing on assembly programs these men 
furnished the chorus of guards and chorus of shepherds for the production of "Rosa- 
munde" in December, and in March presented before the Women's Faculty Club a 
musical burlesque entitled "Hamlet. Hamlet, Where Have You Been?" This group 
also furnishes all men soloists and the chorus of dragoon guards for the opera, 
"Patience," staged by the Music Department in May. Four numbers on the musical 
program of the Physical Education pagent were presented by the Men's Chorus.

WOMEN'S GLEE CLUB 

The Women's Chorus is open to anyone who can sing. From this group, rang- 
ing in number from forty to ninety, are picked the voices that make up the Women's 
Glee Club. The personnel changes from quarter to quarter, but it is upon this 
group of selected singers that the responsibility for all special chorus work is placed. 
The Glee club formed the girls' chorus in the Schubert operetta, "Rosamunde;" 
furnished special numbers for the pagent staged by the Department of Physical 
Education in April; and supplied all women soloists and the "twenty love-sick 
maidens" for the opera, "Patience," produced by the Music Department in May. 

The above picture is the glee club for the winter quarter.

KENT STATE ORCHESTRA 

Kent State Orchestra is a developing institution not only in size and musical 
effectiveness, but in activity as well. It numbers twenty to twenty-five musicians. 
It is appearing at college functions more and more frequently, and is taking an 
increasingly definite position in student activities at Kent College. It has furnished 
music for several programs. It has had three other major appearances this year. 
Augmented slightly by musicians froni the city of Kent, it furnished the accompani- 
ment to Schubert's "Rosamunde," given by the Music Department under the 
direction of Miss Florence Sublette in December. Unassisted, it accompanied the 
Music Department's next production, Gilbert and Sullivan's opera, "Patience," given 
in May. For the impressive inaugural and dedication programs in March, the 
orchestra furnished a two-hour program for the reception to President Engleman. 

The orchestra was under the direction of Miss Florence Sublette for the fall 
term, and under Mr. Dwight Steere for the remainder of the year.

KEXr STATE BAND 

Making its first appearance of the year in an early football game last Fall, the 
best band Kent State has ever had functioned actively throughout the year. Color- 
fully clothed in the new blue and gold caps and capes, much was done by the band to 
liven up appearances in athletic contests. 

Organized through the efforts of Miss Florence A. Sublette, head of the Music 
Department, rehearsals were held regularly in the music room. Under the direction 
oi George Emerson, and with Herbert Kelley as drum major, many long hours were 
spent in practice, but the achievements made the effort worth-while. 

Although this year's band was relatively small in size, the basis was laid for a 
strong group for next year. It is hoped that with the beginning which has been made 
this year, it will be possible to have a larger and stronger band in the future.

•ROSAMUNDE" 

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the death of Franz Schubert, 
famous composer, the Alusic Department of the college presented one of his well- 
known pastorial operas, "Rosamunde." It was given on Tuesday, December 11, 
in the college auditorium. The entire production was given and supervised by 
students and members of the faculty. 

Madge George played the title role with poise and charm, while Orlo Stroup, 
who was leading man. proved himself capable of his part. Other leading roles were 
well rendered by Ruth Geib, Rena Gilson, Alice Elgin, Lowell Masters, Herbert 
Kelley and Charles Paulus. Xon-vocal actors in the cast were: Jay Harriman, 
Alfred Hill and Elmer Earley. 

Ballet numbers between acts were given by members of the Physical Education 
Department under the competent direction of Miss Edith Ball. Mrs. Bernice Setzer 
and the Art Department arranged the scenery. 

The plot of the opera itself was interesting and excellently revealed. Many 
compliments were tendered to Miss Florence A. Sublette, head of the Music De- 
partment, for her fine work as director of the production.

ACHIEVEMENT 

The Kent Stater forced to the front this year with a series of foreward steps without parallel in 
its history. Amone the outstandinc marks of its progress are the following: 

The chanere in size from a five-column to a six-column paper, thus increasing the space devoted to 
news by more than one hundred percent, which made possible a much more thorough coverage of the 
news field. 

The establishment of a departmentalized paper with general news on the front page, features on 
page two. society on page three, and sports on page four. 

The change in publication date from Tuesday to Friday morning. Under the old routine the paper 
was printed on Sunday so news of events happening between Sunday and Tuesday could be written 
only in a haphazard manner. Under the new arrangement news occuring as late as two hours before 
the paper is distributed frequently makes its appearance in the columns of the Kent Stater. 

Already a charter member of the Ohio College Newspaper Association, the Kent Stater took another 
step forward when it became a i barter member of the National Scholastic Press Association on 
January 1. 1929, and in so doing allied itself with more than 1400 scholastic newspapers of leading 
colleges and universities throughout the United States. 

Another step of progress was the acquisition of a spacious office which is gradually being equipped. 
This is located in Merrill Hall, Room 105. 

The Kent Stater has, perhaps, the largest circulation of any college newspaper in Ohio because of 
another progressive step taken in 1928-29. It is sent to nearly 1500 alumni every week besides being 
distributed to every student and faculty member of the college. The total circulation is 2250.

CHI PI HONORARY JOURNALISTIC 

The Chi Pi Honorary Journalistic fraternity was organized in 1927 with the 
stated purpose of "bringing editors of the various college publications in closer touch 
with each other, and to further the journalistic work of the College." 

Students who have made outstanding contributions to the literary work of the 
College are elected to membership by the active members of the fraternity each 
year. Rarely does a student with less than junior standing receive a bid to member- 
ship. 

k definite program of activities is being sponsored by the organization and will 
probably go into effect ne.xt year.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLUB 

The Physical Education club is a new organization on the campus. It is com- 
posed of members who are completing either a major or a minor course in Physical 
Education. There are now twenty-five members in the group.

of Physical Education and mutual assistance in the college and the field; the other 
is social acquaintanceship and contact through good times. Two meetings are held 
each term, one being professional and the other social. 

The Physical Education club was organized in February, 1929. The following 
were elected to office: President, Mary McGillivray; Vice-President, Willard Fisher; 
Secretary and Treasurer, Lucille Hendricks. The advisers of the club are: Mrs.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES OF '28 

Summer college work was begun June 19 with an enrollment of fourteen hundred 
and forty-eight students. The first all-college function was the informal reception 
given Dr. James O. Engleman the first Friday night of the term. He had assumed 
his new duties as president just a few days before. 

The first opportunity given the student body to meet him was at the 
first assembly when the auditorium was filled to overflowing with students who 
attended to hear his initial address. At the first faculty meeting called by President 
Engleman, he made a statement including ten points which he said would govern his 
administration at Kent State. Democracy of administration was the key note. 

The third week was marked by the annual Men's Union rally. More than one 
hundred and twenty-five students, faculty members and townspeople attended. A 
spirit of confident expectation for Kent State's future was voiced by student and 
faculty speakers. Dr. Engleman gave the principal talk of the banquet and won for 
himself the affectionate title of "Prexy" by the friendly attitude shown. 

All-college entertainment course numbers included a two day visit by Frederick 
Ward, noted Shakesperian actor, during which he delivered four addresses; the 
appearance of Edmund Vance Cooke, "the Poet Laureate of Children," at an assembly 
lecture during which he read many of his own poems; the second presentation of 
"The Tailor Alade Man," Home Coming Play; and an interesting lecture by Captain 
Kilroy Harris, Australian, who told a large audience of his native country. 

Another County Night, gala event of the summer sessions, passed into history 
as one of the most outstanding in the records of the College. An audience which 
packed the auditorium to capacity witnessed the stunt competition among 
twelve counties and saw Mahoning County emerge victorious. Portage and Ash- 
tabula Counties tied for second place. Other counties represented were: Columbiana, 
Summit, Lorain, Geauga, Cuyahoga, Stark, Trumbull, and Tuscarawas. 

After "stunting" the traditional lantern parade around the campus formed. 
The line of march ended in Wills gymnasium where a Crowd of seven hundred 
couples closed the festivities of the night with a dance which ended at 12 o'clock. 

Graduation marked the end of the first six weeks term when President Engleman 
presided at a Kent State College graduation exercise for the first time. The grad- 
uating classes presented as a class gift a sum of money to be used as a nucleus for a 
fund with which to erect a College Memorial Gate. The graduating classes of the 
second summer term added to the Memorial Gate fund begun by the other classes. 

A frantic search was made during the first two weeks of the second term for 
another student to make an enrollment of eight hundred which would have seemed 
so many more than the seven hundred and ninety-nine actually enrolled. 

A new organization, the Women's Athletic Association, laid the foundation for a 
strenuous year of activity during '28 and '29 when it elected officers before the end of 
the summer term. 

Other summer activities included a series of tea talks, county picnics, Off 
Campus Women's Club activities, Women's League activities, trips to Cleveland and 
neighboring cities, fraternity and sorority function, all-college dances, step singing, 
Men's Union mixers, etc.

A WORD OF CREDIT 

A dramatical production, musical production, or physical education production 
becomes at Kent State invariably an all-college affair because of the help it receives 
from the various departments. 

Shown above is just one instance of the help given by other departments. It is 
the stage setting for the second act of "The Tailor Made Man," 1928 Home Coming 
play. This setting and the other two used in the play were planned and executed by 
the Art Department with the aid of the Manual Training Department. 

This is only one instance in many in which this spirit of helpfulness and co- 
operation has made for a successful production. Other instances may be cited as 
follows: 

The production of the operetta, "Rosamunde," for which the Art Department 
designed and executed several sets of scenery with the aid of the Manual Training 
Department. In this production nearly a hundred costumes were made by the cast 
with the aid of the Home Economics Department. 

The Physical Education Department's masque, "The Conflict," given in April 
1929, was produced with the aid of the Departments of Art, Home Economics, Manual 
Training and other departments.

DEDICATION AND INAUGURATION EXERCISES 
A new era of progress and achievement at Kent State College was ushered in on 
March 22 and 23, when President James Ozro Engleman was inaugurated as the 
third president of this institution, amidst a gathering of many famous educators and 
representatives from sixty institutions of higher learning, many of whom were the 
presidents of their schools. 

The ceremonies began on Friday morning, March 22, with the dedication of 
the new David Ladd Rockwell Library. The building was presented to the school 
by Judge David Ladd Rockwell, and it was accepted by Dr. Engleman. Miss 
Margaret Dunbar, Librarian, welcomed visitors, and responses were made by Julien 
S. Fowler, of Oberlin College, and Alice S. Tyler, of Western Reserve University. 

In the afternoon of the same day, the inauguration took place. Judge Rockwell 
presided, while several notable educators congratulated the President and extended 
greetings to the school. The chief speaker of the occasion was Governor ^Nlyers Y. 
Cooper, who prophesied for Kent State College a successful future, and announced, 
amidst great applause, that he would sign the Emmons-Hanna bill which had been 
approved by the Legislature, making Kent State a Liberal Arts College and permitting 
the Board of Trustees to grant both the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of 
,\rts degrees. 

Other speakers of the afternoon were: President H. B. Williams, of Bowling 
Green College, Kent's sister institution, who told of the co-operation and good-will 
that existed between the two schools. Then President Robert E. Vinson, of Western 
Reserve University, extended felicitations to Kent State, saying that although Kent 
and Western Reserve would be in competition with each other since the passage of 
the Emmons-Hanna bill, he felt that it would be both necessary and advisable to 
co-operate. Miss May Prentice, Professor of Education, extended greetings from the 
faculty, and Mrs. Ruth A. Damon, of the Department of Reading and Public Speak- 
ing at Wellesley college, extended greetings from the alumni body. Following this. 
President Engleman delivered his inaugural address. 

In the evening a formal reception was held for President Engleman in Lowry 
Hall. Dr. Thomas W. Gosling, Head of the Akron city schools, acted as toastmaster. 
On Saturday morning, March 23, the William A. Cluff Training School was 
dedicated. The building was presented by Henry H. Helter, a member of the Board 
of Trustees, and was accepted by Dr. Amos L. Heer. Dr. William C. Bagley, 
nationally known educational authority from Columbia University, was the main 
speaker. At the Training School luncheon held Saturday noon, O. E. Pore, Superin- 
tendent of Ravenna city schools, presided as toastmaster. 

The entire array of events gave the citizenry of the state an opportunity to 
witness the fine work which is being conducted at Kent State College. The programs 
were broadcast through the courtesy of station WFJC, so that it was available to 
those who were interested but were unable to attend. President Engleman was 
congratulated on his excellent work in building up the school, and he received the 
good wishes of his colleagues in the field of education. Greater accomplishments 
will arise from his work, and the future of Kent State College seems assured.

Coach Merle E. Wagoner came to Kent in the Fall of '25. His pleasant person- 
ality has made him a very popular person on the campus. But besides being pleasant 
he is an extremely capable coach. 

Since '2.'5, Coach Wagoner has been gradually building up material until this year 
he has produced the finest and most greatly feared teams Kent ever turned out. 
In this, his fourth year at Kent, Wagoner's teams turned the tables on many of their 
previous victors and threw a fear of Kent into the rest. As a result of this year's 
playing, Old Kent State will be a highly respected rival on the schedule of any team.

KENT'S GREATEST SEASON 

The greatest football team Kent ever turned out set up a record for future 
Kent teams which they will have to work hard to beat. The season's playing con- 
sisted of eight games, with only two defeats, and in one of them the impossible 
actually happened. 

Remarkable improvement was shown over the previous y-ear. Last year's team 
won one game, tied one and lost five, but it was a great defensive team. Total 
scores show opponents with 79 points and Kent 25. The Flashes this year practically 
reversed the previous season's record.

Not discouraged because of last year's record of only one win, but feeling 
rather elated because of their great defense, another game was added to the schedule, 
stronger opponents picked, and the Old Fight carried Kent through with a glorious 
record. 

Total for the season shows four games won, two tied and two lost. Carrying 
over their great defensive game from the year before, the Flashes added a remarkable 
line offense, and waded and swam through a most successful season, with a total of 
89 points to opponents 32.

The Akron game was the greatest disappointment of the whole season. They 
couldn't beat Kent, but they did even though Kent earned fifteen first downs to three 
for Akron. .Another peculiar phase of the Akron game was that the sun shone 
throughout the da)'. The rest of the games were played either in driving rains or 
on gridirons like quagmires. 

A curious feature of the season was the three cornered tie which resulted when 
Kent played a scoreless tie with Defiance and held Bowling Green 6 to 6. Bowling 
Green and Defiance also tied, but Bowling Green was one of the few undefeated 
teams of the cnuntrv. Kent fans drew their own conclusions.

The Flashes forgot the meaning of Armistice Day and trimmed Indiana Normal 
for the first time in history. The game was played during a rain that fell in sheets, 
and spectators melted away before the game was over. Only a few exceptionally 
brave and loyal boosters saw the game to the finish. 

The most regrettable feature of the whole season was that only two home 
games were played, and both were played in driving rain. However, the fact that 
the Flashes played six games on foreign soil only adds more glory to the team. May 
Kent have many more teams as fine as this one.

1929 BASKETBALL SEASON 
Remarkable progress was shown 
by the Golden Flashes in basket- 
ball this year. The team won 
four times as many games as in 
the previous season and lost only 
half as many. 

In 1927-1928, three games 
were won by the Kent team, and 
thirteen lost. Although display- 
ing good defensive playing con- 
sistently, the team of that year 
lacked the scoring punch so vital 
to a winning team, and scored 
only 390 points against 509 for 
opponents. This year, however, 
the Flashes totaled 515 points to 
opponent's 516. Eleven games 
were won and seven lost.

The Flashes revenged two of 
their defeats later in the season, 
which left only five teams victors 
over Kent. Mount Union, Ohio 
Conference champions this year, 
was the only team able to defeat 
Kent twice. A losing streak of 
four games in one week marred 
the middle of the season. But 
the records show two of these 
games revenged and also a win- 
ning streak of five consecutive 
games. 

The Flashes played two more 
games than in the previous sea- 
son and won from five Ohio Con- 
ference teams. In the nine games 
with Conference teams the 
Flashes outscored their opponents 
in total points.

The high spot of the season was 
the lacing handed to Akron Uni- 
versity who this year were run- 
ners-up in the Ohio Conference. 
This is the team that the Flashes 
get most enjoyment in trimming, 
and this years defeat was the sec- 
ond in three years at the hands of 
Kent. Last year the two rivals 
did not meet. 

The old fight was on display at 
all times and opponents are view- 
ing Kent with a wary eye. Since 
the prospects for next year are 
excellent, no difficulty has been 
met with in arranging high-class 
schedules for future teams.

Coach "Doc" Roberts inaugurated wrestling at Kent in the winter of '27 and 
'28. Two matches were held, each with Western Reserve, and honors were divided, 
Kent grapplers winning one matc'i and Reserve the other. 

The grunters entered six matches this year and won four of them. They also 
entered the State meet at Cleveland, and every man who entered, placed. Two of 
them succeeded in winning second places, and five men captured third places. 

Prospects for next year are excellent, and the matmen are well on the road to 
making wrestling a major sport at Kent. 

Spectators of these matches strained on their seats as much as the men on the 
mat. The fight the boys put into their matches infected the students present and 
made them feel the joy of victory or the pangs of defeat as much as the men on 
the team.

ixtra-:mural athletics 

A small but strong beginning was made toward establishing a system of intra- 
mural athletics at Kent State during the year. Under the direction of Prof. George 
J. Altman and the Department of Physical Education three intra-class athletic events 
have already been staged and a fourth one is being planned. 

The Junior class is at present leading in the race for the victory trophy to be 
awarded the winning class at the end of the year. This trophy will be awarded by 
the Department of Physical Education.

The combination of Stratton and Strawman, both Juniors, placinp; first and 
second respect iveh- in the cross-country run in the fall gave the Juniors an advantage 
from the start. 

The next event, a gymnasium meet, was won by the Seniors to tie with the 
Juniors for first place. The Juniors, however, broke the tie and again went into 
first place when they walked away with honors in the intra-class swimming meet 
held in the College pool.

XATIOXAL \V0:MEX'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 

The Kent branch of the National Women's Athletic Association was organized 
in May, 1928, for the purpose of furthering the national motto, "Play for Play's 
Sake," and to develop an interest in women's intra-mural sports at Kent State. 

The organization made its grand opening of the year in the fall term with a 
picnic to which all the women of the college were invited. The event was held in 
the college woods, and about three hundred were present. 

An interesting and varied program was presented to the members of the group 
throughout the year. Activities typical of the season were ardently participated 
in, in addition to which other events were given. There were four dancing clubs, 
and one swimming club. 

Several important all-college functions were held under the auspices of the 
organization. A swimming meet, a play night, a track meet and a gym meet were 
some of the more important events. A circus held in the gym provided entertain- 
ment of a new type. 

At the present time plans are being made for an intercollegiate play day, to which 
ten colleges are being invited. It is hoped that representatives from neighboring 
institutions will come here to help make the project a success. Nothing of the kind 
has ever been done at Kent before, and therefore the event will be watched with 
interest.

Words of wisdom from the prolific 
minds of several Kent Staters: 



]\Ir. Packard: "I hardly ever tell you 
any truth." 

Mr. Pearce: "Battleships aren't tin 
cans." 

br. DeWeese: "Cops get fat from too 
much traffic jam." 

Dr. Stewart: "If a man steals a dollar 
we put him in jail. If a man steals 
a million dollars we elect him to Con- 
gress. That is because the American 
public appreciates a thing done on a 
big scale." 

Coach Wagoner: "I guess I'll have to 
get a job with some construction comp- 
any. What I need is manual labor and 
mental rest." 



DUST fro:m the C.\]\IPUS 

H. p. E. 101 

Student Teacher: "We are going to 
march on a count of two." 
Lightening: "Who are they?" 




Erie Depot 

Agent: "No, Lady, this train goes to 
Baltimore, Boston and points east." 

Dean Verder: "Well, I want a train 
for Cleveland, and I don't care which 
way it points." 

In The Pool 

Millie: "Don't tell me that funny 
looking man is your father." 

Lou: "Well that is what my mother 
told mel " 

Ken Nash says he can't understand 
why any one would take a year to 
write a novel when you can buy one 
for fiftv cents.
